Spain's Podemos fails to break two-party hold in key Andalusia vote

Spain's anti-austerity party Podemos candidate for Andalucia Teresa Rodriguez (C) speaks at the Tavora Theatre in Sevilla after the closing of polls on March 22, 2015Spain’s anti-austerity Podemos party took third place in a regional vote in Andalusia seen as a crucial test for the political newcomer ahead of the country’s most unpredictable general election in decades. With 99.95 percent of the ballots counted, Podemos had won 14.8 percent of the vote in the southern region according to the regional government, not enough to challenge the country’s two traditional political heavyweights. The main opposition Socialist Party, in power in Andalusia since 1982, topped the poll with 35.4 percent of the vote. The conservative Popular Party, the country’s ruling party, came second with 26.7 percent — down from 40 percent in the previous election in 2012.
